Survey Aims to Improve Council’s Waste and Recycling Service

Between Monday 21 October and Friday 1 November, waste, recycling and green organics bin materials from 100 randomly selected households across the council area will be collected, weighed and assessed. This is not an individual household assessment of any single waste or recycling bin; the samples from each stream end up together and auditors make their assessments based on the total daily collections. No bins will be removed.
 
Access to accurate waste data will enable Council to provide feedback to the community on their recycling efforts and plan future waste reduction strategies.
 
Please be assured that all information gathered will remain confidential and anonymous.  All data will be based on the entire collective sample, not on any individual households.
 
If you do not wish to participate in the survey, or have any questions, please contact our Waste Management Officer on 8372 5111 and provide your property address.
 
Thank you in advance for your support.
